You only need a handful of simple ingredients...

Cottage Cheese - I used a Fat Free Cottage Cheese for this recipe. If you can't find Fat Free you can use a Low Fat Cottage Cheese.


Greek Yogurt - Any fat free plain Greek yogurt works well for this recipe.


Monkfruit Sweetener - LAKANTO Maple Flavored Syrup is the zero point sweetener for this recipe. If you are not a fan of Monkfruit sweetener as it does contain erythritol you can do an even swap with Maple Syrup or Agave.

Recipe FAQ's


What does whipped cottage cheese taste like?

Whipped cottage cheese has a light and creamy texture, similar to whipped cream cheese, but with a tangy and slightly salty flavor. It has a fresh and milky taste with a subtle hint of acidity, which makes it a perfect ingredient for cheesecake.


When whipped, cottage cheese becomes smooth and light, making it a great substitute for cream cheese in cheesecake recipes. It adds a delicious tanginess to the filling while keeping the texture light and fluffy. Additionally, it has a lower fat content than cream cheese, making it a healthier option for those watching their calorie intake.

Is cottage cheese good for losing belly-fat?

Cottage cheese is relatively low in calories and fat, but high in calcium. Calcium is important for bone health, but it may also play a role in weight loss.


Some research suggests that calcium can help to reduce body fat, particularly in the abdominal area.


Overall, incorporating cottage cheese into your diet as a source of protein and calcium can be beneficial for weight loss, including reducing belly fat.


However, it's important to remember that weight loss also requires a balanced and varied diet, regular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle.

What is the best way to store cheesecake?

The ideal way to store cheesecake is to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in the refrigerator. The cheesecake should be stored in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out or absorbing odors from other foods in the fridge.


If you need to store cheesecake for a longer period, it can be frozen. To do this, wrap the cheesecake in several layers of plastic wrap or aluminum foil to prevent freezer burn, and place it in a freezer-safe container. Cheesecake can be frozen for up to 2-3 months.


When ready to serve the cheesecake, it's best to remove it from the fridge or freezer and let it come to room temperature for 30 minutes to an hour before serving. This allows the cheesecake to soften slightly and makes it easier to slice.


Expert Tips


  • Use egg whites instead of whole eggs to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the cheesecake.
  • Add fresh fruit like berries or sliced bananas to the top of the cheesecake instead of using sugary fruit toppings.
  • Use a non-stick baking spray or parchment paper to reduce the amount of added fat from greasing the baking dish.
  • Use a small baking dish or muffin tins to make individual cheesecakes instead of one large cheesecake to control portion sizes.
  • Let the cheesecake cool completely before slicing to prevent it from crumbling and falling apart.
  • Serve the cheesecake with a dollop of low-fat whipped cream or Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream.
  • Enjoy a small slice of cheesecake as a treat, and balance it out with a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
